How to Make This Peach Fluff Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

If you are using fresh peaches, toss the peaches in 1 tablespoon of lemon juice beforehand.

STEP ONE: Using a medium-sized mixing bowl and a handheld mixer on medium-high speed, beat together the softened cream cheese and powdered sugar for 1½ to 2 minutes, until smooth.

PRO TIP:

Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature so that you don’t have lumps in the creamy dressing.

STEP TWO: Whisk in the thawed whipped topping and peach-flavored gelatin.

STEP THREE: Fold in the drained and diced peaches and mini marshmallows. Tightly cover and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

PRO TIP:

Stir all the ingredients together carefully as you don’t want to break apart the fruit pieces.

PRO TIP:

For best results, make sure you give your salad at least 1 hour of chilling time. It allows all of the yummy flavors to blend together.

    Is it necessary to put the nuts in the fluff? I am so allergic to all nuts and hope it not necessary to make the fluff. Thank you for your assistance.
